Module Description

The Reformation of the 16th Century changed the face of Europe and drove a wedge between countries, societies and families. People died for the choices they made. Wars were fought over beliefs. What about us today? Are the matters at stake in the Reformation still relevant to us? The last hundred years have seen ecumenical efforts to heal the “scandal of division.” Did we make any progress? Is there a benefit in having a family of churches? What drives and challenges us to seek greater togetherness?
